NATO Facing Increased Cyber Threats

NATO's Secretary-General commented at a NATO seminar in Finland that the alliance needs to increase defenses against cyber threats. While not releasing any details it appears NATO is concerned about a wide range of potential problems:
"It's really a broad range of threats. There are many actors in cyberspace, and we have to develop a capacity to protect ourselves against those attacks," [said Secretary-General Anders] Fogh Rasmussen."
Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt also commented at the same meeting on the threat saying:
"There are terrorists, spies, subversive attempts, ongoing attacks as well as preparations for much more disruptive and destructive operations... There will be no security for our societies if we can't secure both our cyberspace and our orbital space."
